Wink weather in Van.....

My brother and his wife are on a group tour and tomorrow they join the ship for a trip up the "inside passage".

They are in Vancouver today for a trip to Butchart Gardens. then a Bon Voyage dinner ,

Dan, I am counting on you to provide great weather.......

If they're in Vancouver and want to see Butchart Garden they've got a long swim ahead of them!
Butchart Gardens is North of Victoria on Vancouver Island, not on the Mainland. I'm guessing the cruise ship is leaving from Canada Place in downtown Vancouver?

The weather is really changeable in June; not normally reliably decent...

But I'll do my best, James. I'll plan on getting some indoors stuff done...that should do it.

Very good. Very clear picture. Is James' brother the one with the rimless glasses?

There were only two cruise ships in port this morning, the Volendam being one of them.
Just for fun you can see where they are at all times...
